    LOL You guys are killing me-dont worry about off topic as yes I brought up suggestions.

    I'm in Tony's camp on this one. When I saw the Roamio recording at will-all the time- I really thought why the hell is that thing recording at 6am? Then I saw all the suggestions being recorded and promply turned that feature off.

    There is no "right" thinking on this and thats why there is an Off setting for it. Some might like it, at this point in time I dont.

    I'm not going to evangelize on it, but perhaps after you've had the box awhile and have thumbs-upped and thumbs-downed a bunch of shows (extremely beneficial for Suggestions), you might want to turn Suggestions on again and leave it on for a week, and see if the shows it finds are helpful for you. It really doesn't hurt--the box is there and on anyway, and Suggestions do not consume space you would be using otherwise (if the box needs the space, it simply gets rid of recorded Suggestions for the space).

    In earlier days, there was another reason for Suggestions: the box didn't provide an indicator for how much free space was left, and so one could approximate that with the amount of hours of Suggestions that had been recorded. ;)

    As far as suggestions go, I prefer the ability to undelete recordings that I decide I want to look at again (space willing) over having a gazillion suggestions.

    No just Hydra (at least the big break that's being discussed which was recording way too many Suggestions and then the method of selecting Suggestions changing). Suggestions are still working fine here with TE3. I do recall at least one person indicating they had stopped getting movies recorded on TE3 after the Rovi guide data change but that didn't seem to impact everyone as I'm still getting movies as suggestions.
